Padlocks
#1
Morning All

I need to get a couple of padlocks for the door of my new shed.

The door will be reinforced along the hinges and frame and I plan to have the padlocks top and bottom and the hasps and hinges will be secured with coach bolts.  I had been thinking of padlocks with a round profile as this will hopefully minimise the effective use of croppers by nasties.

What can people recommend or tell me to avoid cos there made of cheese?

Cheers all Smile

A locksmith would be your best best if you want good lock advice, but the weak point on a shed is usually the walls that will often require no more than a solid kick to penetrate.

the hasp is the bit that was attacked and broken on my parents garage, the lock is generally well built, but what it's attached to is generally mild steel and can be cropped easily.

These are carp, (but there's one on my shed)

The metal of these can be hacksawed worryingly quickly, your lock will be hardened and won't be touched.

These are better
